is my take. with the u.s. unemployment rate it is a surprisingly a drop. bill lowest level in over three years. economists thought that it would climb. however, it is only 7.8%. it is the lowest in the united states in 44 months. they added 44,000 jobs in the month of september. more americans at a job and also 86 thousands of jobs more for the july and august months. and the unemployment below 8 percent is what they were aiming for. and this is a good indicator of the presidential election. this

is again, the lowest level at 7.8%. the lowest in 44 months. >> the albany police chief is releasing a detailed account of the middle school teacher. with lewd and inappropriate relationships with possible multiple alleged victim's. and will tran is the latest. >> good morning he has had over one week to release this information. perhaps he was in the back of the corner. this is a picture of james izumizaki. a very popular teacher however, he was arrested and that he committed suicide. his friends, colleagues say that there is no way he is just too popular. for ke to be
6:07am
gui of this. they thought that the police apartment was wrong. however, this news released. before making the arrest they wanted to make sure that they had everything in a row and the present the evidence to a judge. the judge looked at the evidence and they felt that it was enough to issue an arrest warrant if you read the news release its starts talking about a singular fact, and then it becomes plural. that is not coincidental because what the superintendent newscast saying that the superintendent, and the council woman the same girls and victim's. but it is no accident, that it is plural
6:08am
is multiple. and also, they told about possible digital evidence. if there are recordings they want to track them down or at least hold them. with the recent suicide there will be a memorial. and many people think thataccording to investigs they will continue with the investigation. hoping to attract down any more possible that comes. it is their job to provide support. >> why did they say that it was important to bring out the evidence? because obviously, with have deceased there is no case. there is no prosecution what is the point? >> there is no trial. and they do not have to disclose any additional evidence. the of that one week. and at albany middle
6:09am
school board there is a lot of anger to the police department. and how could they do that? perhaps they felt back into a corner. they did not issue this statement until recently. and he felt compelled enough to issue this statement late last night that they will continue with the investigation. even the supporters. they showed up at the news conference. what about the rights of the accused? they would like to know that the community would like to know to present the informations. >> thank you. >> we are going to take a break. coming up, george. usually he is grounded. fleet week
